Though most fungi regarded as opportunistic pathogen but few of them are known to cause diseases such as Saprolegniasis, Aspergiilosis, Scopulariopsis, Paecilomycosis and Peniciilium infection [16].

For the present time, it is increasing the incidence of people of the different ages with conditionally-pathogenic Paecilomyces fungi (early considered to be saprophytic); and the resulting disease is called paecilomycosis.
Low competence of practitioners regarding diagnosis and treatment of pulmonary form of paecilomycosis makes important to study this pathology, particularly in connection with the changes of ecological situation and the increasing role of Vaecilomyces fungus in the etiology of broncho-pulmonary diseases.
In spite of the solving of the most problems related to pathogenesis, clinical-laboratory diagnostics and therapy of these forms of paecilomycosis, radial diagnosis still remains poorly examined.
Ventilation disorders in the lungs, as a rule, can be defined with sufficient reliability through the use of roentgenological examination; and the roentgenological method appears as principal for radial diagnosis of the broncho-pulmonary paecilomycosis.
Therefore, the modern radionuclide technologies can open new perspectives in solving theoretical and diagnostic issues in broncho-pulmonary paecilomycosis.
variotti are often considered as saprophytic fungi, may cause pathogenies named paecilomycosis.
Morbidity of people of different ages from this fungi is increasing, and the disease originating due to this agent is called paecilomycosis.
Clinical-laboratory, roentgenologic, mycological and other methods of observations diagnosed broncho-pulmonary paecilomycosis in these patients.
The table describes CT semiotics of different types of broncho-pulmonary paecilomycosis and frequency of different signs.
From the table it is evident that in broncho-pulmonary type of paecilomycosis the most frequent characteristic CT-signs are the following:
